Daniel,

The Simrad autopilot will work very well, and I have sold a number of them to W32 owners. Mount the outboard end on the caprail just before it starts to dip down, and purchase a 5.9" extention for the rod. That will permit the rod to meet the tiller. This location wil give the autopilot sufficient power to easily handle the boat. I have also seen owners mount a bracket between the legs of the boom gallows to mount the outboard end, but it should be in the same relative location.
